Described by the artist as 'bad drawing', these works on paper are a deliberate attempt to create something unacceptable. Some works depict found objects, and some are sculptural drawings representing objects the artist might make. Others are entirely invented. Considered as a group, the works display an inquisitiveness into the formal properties of drawing, both its process and medium. Made using brown crayon, Bainbridge's choice of medium relates to his sculptures at the time, particularly the extensive use of chipboard, melamine and other brown toned materials dragged from skips and the street. The use of prosaic, discarded materials is integral to artist's aesthetic. For Bainbridge, drawing allows the freedom to 'debase reality'.
